Ritchie Bros sells largest all terrain crane ever: Terex Demag AC700
“We specialize in the rental of heavy-tonnage cranes and this was the opportunity to acquire quality cranes at fair market value,” said Miguel Angel Ibisate, General Man ager of Gruas Ibisate SL, a Vitoria-Gasteiz-based crane rental company with more than 50 years of experience in the rental and transport of lifting and material handling equipment. “We have bought and sold equipment at past Ritchi e Bros. auctions and have always found this to be a channel that fits our needs to sell and realign our fl eet or acquire new equipment – like today – when it is necessary. We also find the Ritchie Bros. team to be professional and trustworthy.”
“We had two exciting days at our auction sites in Ocaña and Moncofa last week,” said Valero Serentill, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers.
“We welcom ed a large and diverse crowd of online and on-site bidders, which created a strong competitive biddi ng environment here in Spain. Excite ment peaked when the selection of mobile cranes was sold on the second day of the auction, with bidder activity from North and South America as well as the far East. One key auction highlight was when the Terex Demag AC700 received the highest bid ever placed on an all terrain crane at a Ritchie Bros. auction ever!”
